Did anyone else notice that there was a trim brake before the crest of every hill on the ride?

 

Those will not be there in the real coaster. It's just because the simulation ran to fast, so they had to slow the train down so that the simulation would look real.

 

The video was made by a fan, it's nothing official

 

Yet apparentely it runs on a tv screen in the park for visitors to see.

 

De video draait als voorproefje voor parkbezoekers sinds gisterenmiddag.

 

In een bouwkeetje hangen de layouts en op een TV-scherm loopt de simulator.

There is new information out concerning the way this coaster will be built:

 

It will become a sort of "hybrid".

The track will be "pre-fab" but it wont be cut out of a laminated block by CAD machines, as the Intamin woodies.

Instead the track will be made out of traditional wooden layers by Cordes and then it will be fitted onto the supports on site.

 

So its either the best or the worst of two worlds.

 

The park demanded that the ride would have at least a "lifetime" of 50 years.

 

It will be build on a concrete slab, so that water can be drained easily.

 

This info can be found on German website "lifthill net".

Ok, i have a question with the whole plug and play track. Is the track shape really cut out of a block of glulam?

 

This is different from my understanding of the way glulam timbers are made for the building industry which is to laminate thin strips of wood in the shape of the final piece. Since the layers are thinner, they are easier to bend. There is also no major cutting required.

Yes.

 

Each track segment is made in a CAD program, then loaded into a machine that carves/cuts it out of a block of "glulam" (glued laminated timber) with a 1mm precision.

Very interesting, but there seems to be too many trims and flat areas on the coaster. It looks like a fun family coaster though, but it just seems to have a lot of filler.

Dude, did you even bother to read the post 3 above yours?

Please read the thread before you waste our bandwidth.

 

Thanks!

A Description of the ride:

 

After the visitors have taken a seat in one of the two trains, the ride starts through the sawmill. A left turn is followed by a small dip which leads to the lifthill. 30 metres higher there are only a few seconds left to enjoy the view as the train slowly picks up speed in another left turn and gets closer and closer to the large first drop. Suddenly it plunges down 30 metres and with 90 kilometres per hour up again into a high-build right-hand turn. Still in the turn the train goes down again and rattles over a hill with lots of airtime.

 

This is followed by a left-hand helix in which it goes up first, than down again. The next airtime-hill leads directly over the entrance to the ride before the train zips by the queue line in the next right-hand helix. After the next airtime-hill, which is located right under the lifthill, the track makes a turn to the left.

 

After some other turns and hills the train rushes down into a tunnel in a heavily banked left-hand turn, which leads directly into a directional change to a heavily banked right-hand turn. This turn leads out of the tunnel and straight into the final brakes in which the train heads with lots of speed left. After the brake there is just the last left-hand turn between the train and the station, before the ride is over and the saw-job finished.

I did some research on curved glue lam timber and that is not how it is made for structural applications. FOr structural beams it is formed (much like concrete). Again, i would be shocked if is cut for the coasters as you say since the grain would be oriented non perpendicular, and there would be a ton of waste.

That's how it was done for Colossos and El Toro.

Each track segment was cut from a rectangular "block" of glulam.

 

Sometimes even like this:

oh I REALLY wanna goto Europe...this thing looks insane!

 

I wonder if this is going to catch on like Intamin Woodies have. If we have two different coaster companies runnin around with PnP woodies available, well the world just might be a better place!

Here are some new photos the park sent me today. We are very much looking forward to our visit this summer! We will continue to bring you construction photos and the park sends them to us, and we also hope to shoot some video during our trip later this year!

 

Please be sure to also check out the progress here:

Another good overview shot.

Who wouldn't like to have this job? =)

Here's a shot of the structure going up.

Mmm...that first drop looks VERY yummy!

With this photo you can see it's going to be a very massive ride!

When I was there a couple months ago, there was a huge spot this couldn't go. I'm guessing it is going over where G'Sau (Or however it's spelled) enterance is. I saw dirt and some construction, but no structure.

 

But this coaster is going to be awesome!
